How to Make Easy Besan Ka Cheela

  • Put all the ingredients except water in a big bowl.
  • Now start adding small quantities of water to make a smooth batter, so that there should be no lumps in it.
  • Add water till it comes to a dropping consistency or just like dosa batter.
  • Now keep it aside.
  • Now heat a non-stick tawa or heavy bottom frying pan, then turn the heat on medium.
  • Put little oil on tawa (1 tsp) and spread 1 serving spoonful of batter evenly on it.
  • Cover it with lid just for a minute so that it should cook inside also.
  • Then remove lid, put some more oil on the top and turn it upside down.
  • Let it be brown and crispy from both sides.
  • Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
  • Serve hot with any chutney (coconut, savoury tomato or green chutney) or sauce.
